This picture represents the REAL "beautiful Japan." Japanese drumming is fantastic. I wish more Jaspanese young people had an interest in their own rich culture.

I love Taiko as much as I love my father. We both just go crazy at the taiko festivals.

Agree with you realist & the photo was very good. I guess I ended up in so many Army parades that I became accustom to drumbs along with military band music. Also in some cases it was a Scottish group behind us, with drumbs & bagpipes plus a long foot step then the rest of the military----saw many of our chaps out of step due to the beat of the drumbs plus the bagpipes.
